Garmisch-Partenkirchen + Zugspitze / Bavaria
At the very top in Bavaria
Werdenfels County – kissed by heaven
With your private day tour Garmisch you’ll make it to the top! A ride on top of the Zugspitze – with 9.718 feet the highest mountain in Germany – will offer you a unique view and bring you unforgettable memories. Join me on a ride to Werdenfels County while you become a part of this amazing region’s warm rural cordiality.
Fantastic adventure Zugspitze
How are you getting up there? After buying the tickets, you make your choice:
- You can take leisurely ride on the Zugspitzbahn, which is a historic cogwheel railway. It has taken guests up to the Zugspitzplatt since 1930. From there a 4-minute ride on the Gletscherbahn to the summit.
- Or let the new cable car, which sets three world records, take you from Eibsee car park up to the peak in 10 minutes. Among other things, it overcomes the world’s highest altitude difference of 6.381 feet
In good weather the summit offers a fascinating panoramic view over Germany, Austria, Italy and Switzerland and you may see about 400 peaks. Even up to 155 miles of distant view are possible – a virtually unforgettable experience on this private tour.
Border-crossing to Austria
Additionally you can “just like that” cross the border to Austria via the western summit. The “Austrian side” offers the adventure museum Fascination Zugspitze and – in a second exhibition – informs about the variety and beauty of the snow crystal.
Too much information on this tour at 9.840 feet? Go ahead and take advantage of one of the gastronomic offers on the summit or simply enjoy the view of the almost endless mountain world.
The market Garmisch-Partenkirchen is located at the foot of the Zugspitze and is the main town of the district of the same name. It has about 27,000 inhabitants and actually consists of two towns, what can be clearly seen today from the two still existing city centers.
The reason for this is in 1935, when the National Socialists forced the unification of the two towns of Garmisch and Partenkirchen because of the upcoming 1936 Winter Olympics. Even today, the so-called Great Olympic Ski Jump towers high above the town, where one of the four competitions of the Four Hills Tournament takes place every year on January 1.
A picturesque town
Garmisch-Partenkirchen benefits from its magnificent location, from the two town centers within a short distance of each other, from historic streets such as Ludwigsstraße, or from the beautiful “Lüftlmalerei” painting that adorns so many facades in the town center.
During a walk, it quickly gets clear that most of the splendid houses in the village centers are nothing more than original farmhouses. All this you will discover on your private day tour Garmisch.
With its numerous gastronomic establishments ranging from hearty Bavarian to exquisite international, Garmisch also invites you to make a culinary stop.
If there is any time left…
After visiting the Zugspitze, there is usually still some time for further activities in the surrounding area, depending on how long you stay on the mountain.
Garmisch-Partenkirchen is a very famous resort, venue of Olympic Winter Games and numerous alpine competitions. The picturesque Ludwigstraße in the district of Partenkirchen, or the Marienplatz surrounded with elaborately painted houses in the district Garmisch invite you to stroll, eat or shop.
The Partnach is one of the two rivers that flow through Garmisch-Partenkirchen and also the border between the two districts. A footpath along the Olympic sports facilities and the Great Ski Jump leads to the Partnachklamm. The gorge (ravine), through which the Partnach has dug her way through millions of years, is walkable and a particularly impressive natural spectacle. Besides firm footwear you need a rain poncho (no umbrellas!) to cover, because water is always dripping from the narrow and steep walls.
The Eibsee or the smaller Rießersee are just two of the numerous small lakes at the foot of the Zugspitze, which you can leisurely hike. Eibsee about 2 hours, Rießersee about 1 hour
